It's not a lemon, but the transmission has never been right.
The transmission has never shifted right, and the dealers have never been able to determine why. Now that it is out of warranty, it is slipping more often and more severely. Like my last two GM cars, I'll probably have to replace the transmission soon. The engines in these cars are great, but the transmissions are too light to match the power (per a trusted, certified mechanic with 40 years of experience).
I had a 2001 Impala LS, which is the reason I bought my 2006 Impala LTZ. The quality has gone down slightly, and the fuel economy has dropped.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
